Shadowed text configurable for Xfwm4


Description Andrew Conkling 2004-10-27 03:30:33 CEST

This is now implemented in SVN trunk.

New Revision: 18349

Allow configurable shadow color with "active_text_shadow_color" and
"inactive_text_shadow_color" (fixes enhancement request #418)

themes start using those color properties, will they still work in <=4.2?  And

I'll post a notice to themers on the forums once I make sure it's OK to go 
ahead and change the themerc.

If a theme specifies the colors, it will work with 4.4 but not with 4.2, ie the
color will be ignored (the theme will still works but the shadows will be simply
